  • 2. 2 Year In ReviewANNUAL REPORT 2014 YEARINREVIEW 2014 was our first year of active gift giving at the Namaste Foundation, and we’re proud to share that we supported 20+ nonprofits with over $300,000 in gifts. We are inspired by the incredible work these organizations are doing to create a more beautiful world. This year we also developed our Namaste Foundation brand design and published several blog posts. We’re excited to keep adding stories to www.namaste.org, and we hope you’ll find the website to be a useful destination for insights about nonprofits and philanthropy. In the spirit of transparency and sharing, this Annual Report provides more detail about the organizations we supported in 2014, along with our Namaste Foundation financial details and website statistics. If you have any questions or would like to collaborate, please let us know. Warm regards, Matthew Monahan, Hamida Hamza & Brian Monahan ANNUAL REPORT 2014
